Description

The 2016 Waitaki Vineyard Pinot Noir has a very refined bouquet of cranberry and raspberry aromas, just perhaps missing the delineation of the Gibbston Vineyard Pinot. The palate is very well balanced, with edgy tannin, crisp cranberry and wild strawberry fruit and a linear, tightly wound, quite minerally finish that deserves a couple of years in bottle. Excellent. 93 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

Tight, pure pinot noir with dark cherry, raspberry, violet and subtle mineral flavours. Fine, focused wine that balances subtle fruit sweetness with fine, ripe tannins. Approachable now but will reward cellaring. 93 points, Bob Campbell MW
